More about air-conditioning in District 97 schools

Things are heating up (per email, expanded by editor):

No School on Sept. 10 for Non-Air-Conditioned Schools

Reported by on 9/9/13

In looking at the weather forecast and the continued high temperatures expected for tomorrow, district administrators have decided to cancel classes at the 20 schools without air-conditioning on Tuesday, September 10. Staff members will report to work in all district buildings. . . . .

Per the announcement linked above, 20 Naperville schools without air conditioning will be closed tomorrow. In addition, District 204 has formed a “Heat Plan Committee”, and the district also has a heat plan with guidelines for early dismissal and school closure.

Heat Plan for Non-Air-Conditioned Buildings

The district monitors internal/room temperatures in non-air-conditioned schools throughout hot days. When the temperature exceeds the recommended guidelines of safety, which is when the Effective Temperature calculation (ET) reaches 85 degrees, we recommend the following early dismissal plan for students be implemented at the non-air-conditioned buildings. . . . .

What is District 97 doing? It has none of these things, and children continue to become ill from the heat.
